The b/g colour does show through the wings so amazingly, so this species is so well named; excellent shot, Trev.

With the green b/g it looks like you are seeing right through the butterfly's wings or maybe we are - hadn't heard of this variety.
I like the way he is clasping the leaf.

what a marvellous butterfly, the transparent or glassy part is just perfect here, no reflection, just a hint of texture.
